Dusty Boots on a Gravel Road

Dusty Boots on a Gravel Road

Dusty Boots on a Gravel Road contains both new songs by Bill, including the beautiful Ireland, I Miss You, which he wrote with Irish singer/songwriter Mary Kathleen Burke, and some fresh interpretations of songs by Robert Burns, Ewan MacCall, Billy Edd Wheeler, and Bill's much requested arrangement of Robin Laing's 'Black Clothes'.

This is a very personal album which varies in mood and arrangement. Most of the songs are recorded simply, with just voice and guitar, although several have been given added depth with rich harmonies and some fine cello playing. It is, in many ways, a longing for a time long past when things were simpler, people were kinder and the world moved much more slowly.

Death, homesickness, homelessness, and social injustice all have a place here and it is hoped that as you listen to the music and meditate on the words you will find something with which you can identify. Either way, if it makes you think, then the job as a writer and singer of songs has been done.
